The Book of Mormon London- 30/10/15- Highlights!

•The whole fucking show lets be real but particular favourite bits:

•Brian as Cunningham in Hello yelling “MY BAD” after the Mission President started telling him off for not sticking to the approved dialogue

•How pissed Nic looked when he said “He answered your prayer… Huh” in the scene after Two By Two

•Nic’s acting whilst Stephan as McKinley was singing about Steve Blade- he was like staring at Stephan really intensely whilst he was singing the deserted island bit and then once he sang “Turn It Off!” Nic just looked really self conscious it was great

•Brian’s enthusiastic clapping at the end of Turn It Off

•"The BLONDE! HAIRED! Blue eyed voice of GOD!“

•"I bet the horse meat there is plentiful…”

•THE KEVIN/CONNOR ALMOST-KISS. IT HAPPENED. IN FRONT OF MY EYES. I ALMOST DIED.

•*Elder Price says he’s leaving* *ridiculously high pitched squeak/gasp from Elder McKinley*

•The fact that on the back of Elder McKinley’s Man Up outfit it says “Highway to Hell”. Love that foreshadowing for act 2.

•All of Hell Dream, but in particular “THAT’S MY DAAAAADDDDDD!!!!”. Also how relived Kevin looked when Connor arrived and then how upset he looked when Connor pushed him away

•The transition between Hell and Uganda, that’s done so well it’s crazy

•"Ohh, you had the hell dream, didn’t you? …Was I in it?“ I LITERALLY ALMOST SCREAMED THEY DID IT SO PERFECTLY

•The General mouthing "I hate you” whilst Elder Price was dancing holding his hand during I Believe

•There was also this really awkward hilarious bit where Nic was singing I Believe kneeling down and he reached for the General’s hand but instead just stroked up his thigh

•All of Baptize Me but in particular Brian practicing baptising Naba in the background whilst she was singing her verse

•All of I Am Africa, particularly Arnold calling Naba “Necrophilia” and all the harmonies

•At some point as well (I can’t remember when) Arnold called Naba “Nigel Farage”, the whole audience fucking lost it, they had to stand there while we all clapped for like a full minute, then once we stopped he was like “Yeah Nige” and everyone lost it again it was amazing

•I have discovered my new favourite thing: watching Elder McKinley, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham whilst Joseph Smith American Moses is happening. You’ve got Arnold just looking completely horrified, Kevin trying not to laugh and Connor chatting with Kevin all through it, looking mildly sick and also trying not to dance along but doing it anyway at some points. Fucking brilliant.

•"You know what guys? FUCK HIM!“ Especially cause after Kevin said it Connor just looked like he was about to melt, nice acting Stephen!

•DURING TOMORROW IS A LATTER DAY CONNOR AND KEVIN KEPT SINGING AT EACHOTHER AND MAKING EYE CONTACT AND AFTER "We love to dance and shout, and let all our feelings out!” KEVIN JUST TURNED TO CONNOR AND THEY WINKED AT EACHOTHER I CAN’T EVEN

•Today was like the biggest standing ovation I’ve ever been a part of. Like everyone in the stalls was standing up it was incredible

•After the bows they talked about how loads of shows are supporting some charity or something atm and asking for donations, and Brian kept making jokes and it was bloody hilarious

•MEETING BRIAN AND NIC. I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE THAT HAPPENED. THEY WERE SO LOVELY. I WAS LIKE “The show was amazing” AND THEY WERE ALL LIKE “Aw thankyou for coming to see it” AND WHILST WE WERE TAKING PICTURES BRIAN WAS LIKE “Wow that is a fancy fucking camera” CAUSE WE WERE USING A POLAROID CAMERA AND SO NOW I HAVE A POLAROID OF ME AND NIC AND BRIAN IN COSTUME. I CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED.

•It was the best show I’ve ever seen live, and I’ve seen like 12 different shows live before this. Favourite musical ever.
